Americans in the US can attend the church of their choice today. Our veterans paid for this with their blood, and some with their lives. God bless these enlisted men and women who sacrificed so much. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) Bati Kot, Afghanistan photo essay. Why are these photos online? Can’t the enemy look at them as well, and in such a terrorist haven as Bati Kot, and learn some intelligence? I believe Bati Kot should be pacified by now! Click for a series of photos of US Army troops in Bati Kot, Afghanistan:

Saturday in the USA and another holiday upon us. In the past it was known as Independence Day. Today, it seems, so many see it as just July 4th, time for a picnic and fireworks. I hope God still can bless the USA and bless the US enlisted troops still serving in the war zone that is in Afghanistan. Pray for America’s enlisted troops in the Afghanistan war zone and around the world. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) More attacks in Bati Kot, Afghanistan: why isn’t this place pacified yet???!

Another day at war for US enlisted troops in Afghanistan. May God bless and keep them safe.

1.) Marine’s convention overturned, as it should have been long ago:

Another mid-week at war for U.S. troops in Afghanistan. I have been meaning to write for a while that when the U.S. ends its involvement, and I hope and pray with a victory, in Afghanistan, I will not write nearly as much on this blog after that happens on 31 December 2014. I will post sporadic updates about U.S. enlisted war veterans of Afghanistan, the awarding of the Afghanistan Victory Medal to US troops, I hope with the motto: VICTORY THROUGH STRENGTH, and such, but with the war winding down and US troops and US money coming home with them will slow down on the blogging. God bless America’s enlisted troops in Afghanistan!

God bless America’s enlisted troops in Afghanistan. Another hot and dangerous summer for them is in session.

1.) U.S. Army to slash ranks in budget-cutting move. Good thing the war in Afghanistan and Iraq have been won. All that’s left is to finish packing up in Afghanistan and issue the Iraq and Afghanistan Victory Medals to US troops with the motto, “VICTORY THROUGH STRENGTH.” ¬†God bless America’s enlisted men and women who fought so hard to secure victory in Iraq and Afghanistan. I would also suggest, that the MARSOC (Special Op Marines) Marine units be disbanded like the Marine Raiders were after WWII since these wars have been won too. The Army has a bigger budget and already has special forces. Plus the Navy has Seals. Link:

Another week at war for US troops in Afghanistan. I read a story about a Marine who died in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan in 2012, and his parents are building cabins in Montana for troops to relax at. Look at #1 & #2 for details.

1.) Fallen Marine’s family plans oasis in Montana for returning veterans. Link:
